When Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council were considering how to mark the forthcoming Remembrance Sunday, given the current national lockdown, they were delighted to find that local thermoplastic playground and road marking supplier, UniPlay, were able to come up with a solution that was swiftly deployed across 20 sites throughout the borough.
Using their state of the art cutting facilities they created “perfect poppies” which were applied to road surfaces outside of local memorials allowing the Council to show their respect and “mark” the occasion.
Dwayne Lowe CEng MCIHT, Head of Highways at Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council, said, “We would like to say a big thank you for this to UniPlay, it was a perfect way to show support for our armed forces whilst we cannot gather together as usual.”
UniPlay MD, Paul Riley, added, “at Uniplay we were only too pleased to be able to assist with this hugely worthwhile project. Helping the local community to continue to remember – and pay their respects to – those who gave their lives to protect us, even in our own current situations with a national lockdown, is undoubtedly the right thing to do.”
